Coman appears with a McLaren and Bayern fines him

first_imgFailure to comply with this advertising commitment of the Bavarians will cost a fine to the extreme, which was wanted to explain in the German newspaper. “I want to apologize to the club and to Audi for not going to train in the car I was supposed to. The Audi had a damaged rear-view mirror. Anyway, it was a mistake, “he says, blaming the change of vehicle on a breakdown. As Bild explains, he is not the first player to break this rule and have to pay the fine. Before him, Jerome Boateng and Philippe Coutinho changed the brand of the four rings for a Mercedes and Niklas Süle went in a Ferrari. Kingsley Coman went to train this Thursday with his teammates in the plan to return to activity that Bayern started last April 6 after two weeks of total confinement and telematic training. What should be something ‘normal’ ended in a fine for the French winger, who breached one of the sponsorship contracts of the German team as explained by the German newspaper Bild.Coman went to train Säbener Strasse with in a McLaren 720 S white when he had to do it with a model from Audi, a German factory that has a sponsorship contract with Bayern in which it appears that the players must go with the brand’s cars to the club’s facilities. last_img read more

Digicel Grand Prix helps smaller schools shine – Riley

first_imgKINGSTON:Head coach of Excelsior High School’s track and field programme, David Riley, says the Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championships helps schools with smaller athletics programmes to shine.Pointing to his own team which finished third among the girls teams and in the top five among the boys’ teams in the 2016 Grand Prix series, Riley said higher-quality athletes were able to earn valuable points from fewer events, compared to the annual Boys and Girls’ Championships, in which larger teams win by harnessing more points.Excelsior athletes who performed well at Saturday’s Grand Prix final at G.C. Foster College were Shanice Love, who won the girls’ Under-20 discus with a record throw of 50.39 metres; Andre Garvey, who was third in the boys’ Under-20 discus; Joel Morgan, who won the boys’ Under-16 long jump; Jonathan Smith, who was third in the Under-20 long jump; and Kaliah Jones, who was second in the girls’ Under-17 high jump.”It’s a great opportunity for the schools to go out there and not use 10,000 people to win a championship. It works for teams like ours that have quality athletes, but can’t score 200 and 300 points to win Champs, but because we have six good athletes [we] can go there and compete against the six athletes that are good for the other schools.”It’s a great opportunity for schools that are small and have good-quality athletes and not have to pad their performance. It great for small teams and great for teams with quality,” he said.Edwin Allen girls and St Jago boys were named Grand Prix champion schools.Riley added that the more sponsors that track and field is able to attract, the better.”The Grand Prix is a positive thing for the sport. The sport is part of an entertainment package that we have not really been exploring a lot, and anything that makes it big is going to help the sport,” he said.last_img read more

Mike Bryan wins Wimbledon for 17th Slam, 1st without brother

He paired with Vasek Pospisil to defeat the Bryans in the 2014 final.“There was one guy I was going to play doubles with in this tournament, and it would be Mike Bryan, half of the greatest doubles team,” Sock said.The final lasted 3½ hours and began with the retractable roof open, then ended with it shut for the last set.When Klaasen and Venus — who were trying to win their first Grand Slam title — held a set point in the fourth, Bryan was called for a foot fault on a second serve. That meant he double-faulted, giving the set away and forcing a fifth.There were about 20 minutes of daylight left, and Sock said: “I’m good to call it for the night. I can’t see.”ADVERTISEMENT Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Mike Bryan and Jack Sock of the United States hug after winning their men’s doubles final match against South Africa’s Raven Klaasen and New Zealand’s Michael Venus at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London, Saturday July 14, 2018.(AP Photo/Ben Curtis)LONDON — Mike Bryan found himself a suitable backup partner for Wimbledon and the result was a record-tying 17th Grand Slam men’s doubles title — and his first without his twin brother.Bryan teamed with Jack Sock for only their second tournament together, and the American duo edged Raven Klaasen of South Africa and Michael Venus of New Zealand 6-3, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 5-7, 7-5 on Saturday night in the final at Centre Court.ADVERTISEMENT The decision was made to close the dome and turn on the artificial lights, so the match could continue until its conclusion.The key break came with Klaasen serving at 5-all, when he pushed a volley long after Sock sent a big forehand right at him. Bryan then served out the victory.John Newcombe is the only other man in tennis history with 17 Grand Slam doubles trophies. The most he won with one partner was 12, though. The Bryans’ 16 as a pair is a record.They had played doubles with each other in a record 76 consecutive major tournaments until Bob missed the French Open in May.Mike entered Roland Garros with Sam Querrey, and they lost in the first round.Mike then played at a grass-court tuneup with Sock last month, their only event before Wimbledon.“It feels like we’re getting better every match,” Mike said. “We’re starting to jell.

Triplets’ Mother Seeks Assistance

first_imgMaima Massaquoi, who recently gave birth to triplets at the John F. Kennedy Hospital in Sinkor, is seeking assistance from well-meaning Liberians, philanthropists, as well as from the government of Liberia.According to Maima, the triplets, who include two girls and a boy, were a blessing from God. She was therefore appealing for humanitarian assistance to help her give the children a ‘head-start’ in life, being short of everything that the children need.“My husband and I cannot bring up these children now. Things are not good for us. He does not have a good job for now, and we still have to take care of them—look for good food for them. Even the clothes they need require money. We are doing our best while we await others’ help.”Ms. Massaquoi explained that she was satisfied with her God-given gifts and any help to the children would—in her heart—take second place only to what God has provided her family through His goodness and grace.When we spoke to a neighbor of the triplet’s mother, Mr. Gabriel Hina, Sr., he said the mother of the triplets was in dire straits, and needed assistance to bring up them up.According to Maima, they were born on February 3, this year, and currently reside in the Bangay-Town community; she can be reached on the following numbers: 0886-408823, 0886-516291.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Carter Center Provides Livelihood for Mental Health Patients

first_imgThe Sinoe County Health Team, with support from The Carter Center’s (TCC) Mental Health Beyond Facilities Project, has completed two weeks training for a newly formed Patient Support Group in various types of soap making, according to a TCC press release.The training, which involved people living with mental illness and their caregivers, included skills development in soap making, effective handling of harmful materials, microfinance and opportunities for accessing microloans, and training in self-care and stress management. “This training, supported by TCC, seeks to improve the economic status of persons with severe mental disorders and epilepsy,” Sidney Bowier, a social worker and the lead for Sinoe County’s Social Work Services said. According to Bowier, the training is one component of many activities under a community-based mental health program entitled, “Mental Health Beyond Facilities” (MHBF), which has been going on in Sinoe County since 2012. “The Patient Support Group (PSG) concept,” the release said, “was developed to bring together groups comprising caregivers and persons with mental illness to provide support to others, and undertake activities that promote income generation for them.” “The PSG idea came from a three-country project that includes Uganda and Nepal,” added TCC staff Wilfred Gwaikolo.According to Gwaikolo, in Uganda, TCC has been using patient support groups that include a livelihood component very successfully.The PSG concept focuses on improving livelihoods of households of persons with mental illness and epilepsy by providing opportunities for micro-financing businesses and to participate in their community’s economic activities. So far, two groups have been formed in two communities in Sinoe County.In the Kabada Community, the PSG identified soap making as their choice of enterprise “because their community is near a concession area, and soap making is in demand and sells faster.” The Kabada PSG will produce large quantities of soap and distribute them among group members for sale.The soap making training will include the production of two types of soap, including a local Liberian ‘iron soap’ and liquid soap.By the end of two week training, participants would have acquired the necessary skills and knowledge needed to produce quality soap.The MHBF project is led by TCC Liberia Mental Health Program in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Sinoe County Health Team and the Liberia Center of Outcomes Research in Mental Health.The project seeks to reduce the treatment gap between need and interventions, promote individual and family livelihood and reduce stigma, while enhancing effective psychosocial functioning of persons with severe mental disorders and epilepsy, and members of their family. It is being implemented at 10 clinics in six districts in Sinoe County. Since February last year, over 150 persons with mental health problems and epilepsy have benefited from the project, according to the release.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Cal State Men

first_imgBut Coyotes coach Jeff Oliver isn’t giving either team a free pass to Monday’s title tilt. “There are a lot of talented teams in the field,” he said. “No one is going to have an easy game. It is a very balanced field with every team capable of winning it.” Because the Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team must make the 800-mile trek to the remotely located rainforest that is Humboldt State University, it can do so knowing it is playing its best basketball of the season. The Coyotes (22-5) are the No. 2 seed in the eight-team Division II West Regional that begins today. The host Lumberjacks (24-3), who have won 13 straight games and have not lost on their home floor, are the favorite. The two juggernauts are on a collision course to meet in a final that would pit the nation’s No. 4 team against the No. 8. “He is playing now like the guy I recruited,” Oliver said. “That’s what I expected all season. It’s a good time for him to be playing up to that potential.” Rounding out the starting core are Harris (13.1 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.7 spg), senior forward Chet Johnson (10.2 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 2 spg) and senior forward Yoseph Yaisrael (7.9 ppg, 3.1 rpg) with Lance Ortiz (5.9 ppg, 2.7 apg, 1.7 spg) and Marlon Pierce (6.5 ppg, 3 apg, 1.8 spg) taking turns at the point. Key reserves are backup center Greg Williams (6.2 ppg) and junior sharp-shooter David Reichel (6 ppg). The Coyotes are second in the nation in steals, averaging 11.8 per game. Five Coyotes were in the top 10 in the CCAA in that category. The team’s 320 broke the previous school single-season total of 291 set in 2002-03. “We’re playing much better defensively,” Oliver said. “We’re doing better in transition, not giving up so many easy buckets and we’re generating some offense with what we’re creating defensively.” The Seasiders will have plenty of size to matchup with Johnson in 6-9 sophomore Wu Tai-Hao (106 ppg, 5 rpg, 1.6 bpg) out of Taiwan and 6-9 freshman Lucas Alves (14.6 ppg, 6 rpg) out of Brazil. Other starters are junior guard Corey Nielson (7.3 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 3.6 apg), junior guard Paul Peterson (8.7 ppg, 8 rpg, 3.8 apg) and senior guard Eric Boyce (10. 7 ppg). “We know it’s going to be tough but we’re ready,” Yaisrael said.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img The Coyotes open play at 2:30 p.m. against No. 7 Brigham Young-Hawaii (20-7), the Pacific West Conference runner-up. It will the Coyotes’ eighth regional appearance in the last nine years with last year being the exception. The Coyotes are 3-3 against teams in the field. They split games with Humboldt, with each team winning on its home floor, and defeated both No. 4 Seattle Pacific (86-66) and No. 5 Grand Canyon (104-60) in December. The trouble came with local rival Cal Poly Pomona, which beat the Coyotes twice and looms as the potential semifinal foe. The Coyotes are riding an eight-game win streak, and confident as are playing better than they were when they lost at East Gym a month ago 89-78. “We’re not the same team. We’re playing much better,” senior guard Prentice Harris said. “And we have played here before so we know what it’s all about. We’ll be ready, no excuses.” Much of the optimism is due to the recent play of 6-foot-8 senior Ivan Johnson (14.8 ppg, 4.7 rpg), who is averaging 19 points over his last nine games and 24 over the last four. The University of Oregon transfer has been a factor on both ends of the floor and has been able to keep his emotions in check. last_img read more

This was the first time in a number of years that these two schools from opposite ends of the county came together in direct opposition at schools level. An early exchange of scores on the board helped both sides to settle into their stride. The majority of the first half was nip and tuck with never more than two points between them. However, this was to change shortly before half time when the Kilcar boys struck with two quick- fire goals to put them into a commanding lead coming up to the half time whistle.Kilmacrennan started the second half with a couple of early scores to narrow the gap to four. However, the Kilcar boys went up the field within a few minutes and struck the vital third goal to put them well in control. Try as they might the boys from Kilmacrennan could not get back into the game and it was the boys from the south-west who were celebrating at the final whistle. Great team performances from both sets of players with a high standard of skills being displayed throughout which were a credit to their schools and teachers.Pic top- Co board delegate Manus O’Donnell presenting the Roinn 3 shield to the winning Scoil Chartha team.
